Two Puffs Of Purple Punch A Day Keeps The Blues Away
From errand runs to catnaps in the park, this cartridge helped me relax into it all.
As a self-proclaimed Jane of All Trades, I’m frequently multitasking and checking things off my neverending to-do list. And in order to keep my anxiety at a minimum among so many moving parts, I turn to cannabis. It’s always been able to keep me calm yet energized—granted I pick the right product. Once I find that perfect high that gives me what I need to get through a hectic day darting across town, meeting with clients, sitting in traffic, and running errands, I’ll ride that product until the wheels fall off.
“The first hit had me double-taking at what I just inhaled.”
Eden Extracts created a memorable Purple Punch Diamond cartridge that immediately caught my attention and had me coming back for more. It’s a hybrid of Larry OG and Granddaddy Purple, two of my favorite men, and had wildly potent flavors of sweet berries that literally had me saying Mmmmm over and over again. For context, it’s a 500mg cartridge containing 75% THC, so a couple pulls are all you need to feel the effects.
For my first session with this vape, I tried it as I was leaving the gym. The first hit had me double-taking at what I just inhaled. Not only was the vapor super smooth, it tasted phenomenal, too. I do have a bit of a sweet tooth, so this was right up my alley and the flavor just kept unfolding with an aftertaste that had me coming back for more. Ya girl was very high—almost immediately in fact—and I liked it. I needed that distinct disconnect from the workout I’d just barreled through to get me into the zone for what came next: errands.
I enjoy tasks like grocery shopping and Target runs, but when you roll them all into one afternoon, it’s overwhelming and I dread it wholeheartedly. Luckily, this cartridge helped me zone in on one task at a time and relieved any lingering anxiety that tried to creep in as I headed for the first stop. Miraculously, I was able to get all my things done in record time, feeling fully unwound and clear-headed at the same time. The afternoon was a bit of a haze, and before I knew it, I was back home unloading my goods. I definitely went overboard at Target but that’s to be expected. And anyway, once I was at home with my pants off and happily high, I couldn’t have cared less.
“Everything was so vibrant—my mood, the water, the sun on my skin—and I was loving every minute of it.”
My second session with this cartridge started with me feeling lazy in front of the TV, ready to binge Grey’s Anatomy. I was ready to hardcore chill, but once I hit that cartridge, I suddenly felt the urge to be outdoors and in the sun. So I made my way to Echo Park Lake with a blanket and a book and spent some time with Vitamin C. Everything was so vibrant—my mood, the water, the sun on my skin—and I was loving every minute of it. I was feeling so calm and relaxed, I took a little catnap in the sun and woke up refreshed and still high. This high was really hooking me up with the chill vibes, a key factor in what I look for in bud that can help me manage my anxiety every now and then.
I ended up still being a little high when I went into my weekly therapy session and, to my surprise, it helped me be a bit more open from the start when normally my therapist has to prompt me to open up. A direct quote from my therapist: “You’re sharing a lot today.” I guess you could say this Purple Punch cartridge had me so at ease, I was more than willing to jump in the sharing circle.
I didn’t have many expectations with this product as heavy indica strains aren’t normally my first choice for errand runs, but it really delivered exactly what I needed on two separate occasions. I was able to unwind fully and skate through my day thanks to a high I’d love to experience again and again.
